This wasn't on television yet, just radio. Why should Groucho get all dressed up when only the audience in the studio would see him? Why should they bother with a duck?

Subject: Almost no visuals added...
...not even a duck when the secret word is said. I almost missed it, except for that orchestra stinger. And Groucho, would it have killed you to wear a nice suit and a bow tie?
